4 reasons why I love walking
1. It boosts your mood! Walking outside for 30 minutes a day will help you get your daily requirement in vitamin D3 and will help you fight the winter blues. It also relaxes the nervous system and makes you calmer.
2. Your arteries pump blood out from your heart, but veins don't pulse; only squeezing the skeletal muscles around your veins will push blood through them. Walking gently pumps the blood back to your heart and reduces the risk of overall inflammation. It also lowers the risk of varicose veins.
3. It lowers the blood sugar levels and the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and helps prevent cardiovascular disease.
4. It helps you improve the function of your lymphatic system, the conduit of your body's immune system. This can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite!
